Recall Backers Say They Have Enough Signatures

Backers of an effort to recall Governor Davis say they´ve turned in enough signatures for a recall election. Ted Costa, coordinator of the Republican-led signature drive, say proponents turned in 925,000 signatures this morning and

intend to surpass one million by the end of the day. Valid signatures from 897,158 registered voters are needed for the recall to make the ballot. Backers are hoping for a special election in the fall.

Meanwhile the anti-recall group, Taxpayers Against the Governor´s Recall, held a press conference in Los Angeles today. They displayed some of the more than one million signatures they say they´ve collected on nonbinding petitions opposing the recall.
